Marbofloxacin is a synthetic, bactericidal antimicrobial, belonging to the fluoroquinolone group which acts by inhibition of DNA gyrase. It is effective against a wide range of Gram positive bacteria (in particular Staphylococci,Streptococci) and Gram negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter cloacae, Serratia marcescens, Morganella morganii, Proteus spp, Klebsiella spp, Shigella spp, Pasteurella spp, Haemophilus spp, Moraxella spp, Pseudomonas spp, Brucella canis) as well as Mycoplasma spp. Bacterial strains with a MIC ≤ 1μg/ml are susceptible, strains with a MIC of 2μg/ml are intermediately susceptible and strains with a MIC ≥ 4μg/ml are resistant to marbofloxacin (CLSI, 2004). MIC90 values of marbofloxacin for strains of Staphylococcus (pseud)intermedius, Escherichia coli and Pasteurella multocida isolated from diseased cats and dogs in Germany were 0.5μg/ml, 0.5μg/ml and 0.06μg/ml, respectively. Resistance to fluoroquinolones occurs mostly by chromosomal mutation with three mechanisms: decrease of the bacterial wall permeability, expression of efflux pump or mutation of enzymes responsible for molecule binding. Marbofloxacin is not active against anaerobes, yeasts or fungi.
